This book is different from many others before it that usually recite the causes and effects of perpetual poverty in Liberia and other developing countries. This book, however, offers a new Vision of Unity, Peace, Equality, Fairness, Justice, Hope, Opportunity and Prosperity for all the People of the Republic. As Liberia reaches 185 years since its founding and 160 years of Independence, the time is now for each and every Liberian to fill our hearts and minds with Positive Patriotism anchored by Love for God, Love for Ourselves as Liberians, Love for Liberia and Love for each and every fellow Liberian. This vision is a Vision of Positive Patriotism. With a new Vision of Positive Patriotism, the book implores Liberians to embark on building a New Foundation for our beloved Republic since the foundation that was built in 1822 has been destroyed and/or is obsolete. The land, Liberia, is blessed with abundant natural resources such as gold, diamonds, iron ore, rubber and timber and the necessary manpower. This book lays out strategies on how Liberians can protect, unify and professionally manage our country; marshal and develop our country's human capital, financial capital and natural resources; build new inclusive permanent functional institutions, eliminate corruption, create jobs for the 85% of Liberians that are unemployed today and bring about the rapid economic and social development of the Republic of Liberia. Equally important, the pages of this book offer practical strategies and step-by-step implementation guides that will make the new Vision a reality and lift Liberia out of the deep valley of poverty to the great heights of prosperity! With God's help and Liberian's hard work, we can turn Liberia into a Miracle on the Atlantic Coast in less than twenty years. Finally, the strategies in this book when applied carefully can work to lift any developing country and/or country coming out of civil conflict from extreme poverty to unprecedented prosperity.
This beautifully illustrated panoramic souvenir captures the essence of the glamorous Gold Coast and its hinterland and national park surrounds.
The fourteen essays of this volume engage in distinct ways with the matter of motion in early modern Spanish poetics, without limiting the dialectic of stasis and movement to any single sphere or manifestation. Interrogation of the interdependence of tradition and innovation, poetry, power and politics, shifting signifiers, the intersection of topography and deviant temporalities, the movement between the secular and the sacred, tensions between centres and peripheries, issues of manuscript circulation and reception, poetic calls and echoes across continents and centuries, and between creative writing and reading subjects, all demonstrate that Helgerson's central notion of conspicuous movement is relevant beyond early sixteenth-century secular poetics, By opening it up we approximate a better understanding of poetry's flexible spatio-temporal co-ordinates in a period of extraordinary historical circumstances and conterminous radical cultural transformation. Los catorce ensayos de este volumen conectan de una manera perceptible con el tema del movimiento en la poesia espanola del siglo de oro, sin limitar la dialectica de la estasis y movimiento a una sola esfera o manifestacion unica. Entre los multiples enfoques cabe destacar: el cuestionamiento de la interdependencia de la tradicion e inovacion, de la poesia, del poder y la politica, de los significantes que se transforman, de los espacios que conectan y cruzan con los tiempos 'desviados'; analisis de las tensiones entre lo sagrado y lo secular, del conflicto centro-periferia y del complejo sistema de produccion, circulacion y recepcion de los manuscritos; el dialogo con el eco poetico a traves de los siglos y de los continentes y la construccion creativa del sujeto escritor y/o lector. Al abrir la nocion central de Helgerson del "movimiento conspicuo" mas alla de la poesia nueva secular, este libro propone un entendimiento mas completo de las coordinadas espacio-temporales de la poesia en un periodo de circunstancias historicas extrao Jean Andrews is Associate Professor in the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, University of Nottingham.
